    Europe - UK Thursday - December 14, 2006     08:45 PM

    DAVID & LAYLA screening on Gala Closing Night.
    18 Official Selections, 4 Wins. Shiva Rose, the first Persian American actress in a lead role in an English-speaking feature, just won "Best Breakthrough Performance Award- see news at both and "Shiva Rose (Layla) excels as a self-reliant damsel in distress worth rooting for." VARIETY. The Director, who won 'Spirit of Independent Award', will introduce the film. DAVID & LAYLA is making a Guiness Book of Records by being Official Selections not only at regular film festivals but also at 'Political/Human Rights' and 'Love/Romantic' film fests! From an impossible romance, a hope (a fantasy!) for peace: David & Layla- a Jewish Muslim Romantic Comedy. Set in New York, inspired by a true story. "This new comedy about young loves and the large ethnic families (on both sides) that stand between them could have been just another My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but its originality and insight set it apart. This outright charmer by Jay Jonroy has the potential of being a broad crowd-pleaser, along the lines of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Only David and Layla is a superior variation on that film, with unexpected insights…” Joe Baltake.
